Back Sides is a third studio album by American alternative rock band Lazlo Bane. The album was their first digital only release reflecting the shift in music industry at the time.[1]

Overview[edit | edit source]

Back Sides consists of tracks that were written by the band during their work on the previous album, All the Time in the World, but for any reason did not make into the final cut.[2][3] However, the band considered the album as having more representation of themselves.[4]

Musically, the album follows the style of All the Time in the World, but being less polished, more guitar-based and rock-driven, also similar to the band's debut album 11 Transistor.[4]

The song "Unbelievable" is themed with the dissatisfaction with the music business[5] reflecting frontman Chad Fischer's previous experience in School of Fish and early Lazlo Bane years.[6]

"Peace Is Our Profession" is an anti war song for which a music video was shot.[7] It was made in honour of Stanley Kubrick's film Dr. Strangelove and features footage from it.[8][9]

Cover artwork[edit | edit source]

The cover of the album repeats the cover of All the Time in the World, showing the same TV, but now from the back and on the dark background, and highlighting the relation of the albums.
